Priscilla Beach Theatre Restoration, Priscilla Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Priscilla Beach Theatre, which just completed its 78th year, is the oldest barn theatre still in operation in the United States. The ongoing restoration work by owners and guardians Bob and Sandy Malone will be completed in time for next summer's performance season. "Fiddler on the Roof," and "Chicago" are already scheduled. Call 508-224-4888 to get your tickets/reservations now.

The exterior of the structure is essentially complete.

Construction of the decking continues with most of the surfaces completed. Installation of the fire suppression system under the decking is underway now.

Interior finish work continues even on these cold winter days.  The windows have been installed in the master control room at the back of the mezzanine.

View of the stage area from the audience right mezzanine.

View from upstage right looking towards the audience area.

This update is the latest edition of a multi-part series which I began in May 2014 to chronicle this extraordinary project to restore a precious part of our American theatrical heritage.
